5/8″ Optimus by Yale Cordage is a single-braid 12-strand rope.
BACKORDERED UNTIL 7/20 please see 5/8 yalex
Optimus is made from solution dyed colored fibers and then coated with clear maxijacket coating unlike Yalex or Tenex which is a white rope then coated its color. This rope will not show white after use or after splicing. The braid angle of Optimus is a bit loser to speed up splicing and optimize strength.
Optimus is color coded by diameter for easy identification in the field.
5/8″ Optimus is orange
